Community Service

Each year, our Scouts perform their duty to their community by participating in a variety of Service Projects. Each project has special requirements and all need adult help and supervision. Some projects may require work gloves, safety glasses, garbage bags, etc

Service Projects

Doing service projects together is one way that Cub Scouts keep their promise “to help other people.” While a Scout should do his best to help other people every day, a group service project is a bigger way to help people. While you’re giving service, you’re learning to work together with others to do something that’s good for your community.

Service projects may help the natural world, the community, or the chartered organization. Here are some service activities Cub Scouts can do.

  1. Helping the natural world
    • Pick up litter around your neighborhood
    • Clean up trash by a stream
    • Plant seedlings or flowers
    • Recycle glass, paper, aluminum, or plastic
    • Make bird feeders
  2.  Helping the community
    • Helping the community
    • Give a flag ceremony for a school
    • Collect food for food banks
    • Make cards for a care center
    • Clean up a church parking lot
    • Hand out voting reminders
    • Hand out emergency procedure brochures
  3.  Helping the chartered organization
    • Helping the chartered organization
    • Do a cleanup project
    • Plant and care for trees
    • Conduct a flag ceremony
    • Help set up for a special event

These are only a few ideas for service projects. Can you think of others? Share your ideas with the members and leaders of your den.
